  • In my project, I take a Snapshot and download it. It works fine on my pc and web version but in android app, nothing happens. I even selected "ask permission for external write storage" while export but still no help

    Can please someone help me

  • Just learned that it is not possible to download files in app export

    Extremely disappointed. Downloading a "simple file" is a basic thing which a game engine can do

    I was making a gradients generator app. In it gradients of different types can be generated. And then user can download it. Whole hard work got trashed.

    Does anyone know any other magical way to download files in app export (I know about share plugin but it is useless)

  • Wow, I was just about to post this very question! I save a backup of a game, but now I'm testing this feature on an iPad and it will save it to a slot, but then I invoke a download (where I usually can select where to save it) and it won't do it.

  • Try Construct 3

    I am not sure but give a shot with share plugin (I am not sure whether it will work in app export or not). Infact it is even better than what you are currently doing right now

    Construct 3 will usually save the data in usual way. For the backup you can "share" the save file :- like in Google drive (or share somewhere else). It is much better than "download" as construct 3 is already doing it.

    But unfortunately in my case it would be disastrous 😂. Why to use a app which can't even simply download an image?

  • As noted for 'Invoke download' in the manual:

    Downloading is a browser feature and depends on the browser UI. Note that mobile apps don't run in browsers (there is no address bar etc), so the download feature isn't available there. Consider using the Share plugin to share the file instead.
